Most parts on my bike already have several seasons of use behind. I use my bike for aggressive XC-riding but for sure no big jumps etc...I`m an aggressive rider going downhills though (former motocross pro) but have yet to brake a part.I still use a 02 frame because technically it’s identical to the 03 but I prefer the colour scheme of the 02. I have that ultralight Tune “superscharf” wheelset which is really ultralight but for everyday riding I prefer the ceramic coated rims which results in much more brakepower.those Matrix ceramic rims are the only ones I found with 28-holes. there’s no more 28-hole X517 with ceramic coating.on my trails i also prefer the heavier full knobs over the semislick-like Twister.I need good traction going into corners and that`s where those Nokian NBX Lite shine.that`s why you don`t see the Twister on my ultralight front wheel – I would never ride my bike that way.just for the listing it would look cool because the weight drops another 100g but I like to list what I really use. you also see me using the ECLIPSE-Tubelesskit on my everyday wheels.it`s days and nights better than any tube out there and just 20g heavier than my ultralight tube setup...but I get lower rolling resistance,puncture proofness and self sealing all in one. that Aluminium cassette I currently use is really a piece of art but that`s about the only item on my bike that won`t last.I guess more than 500km aren`t doable.so far that cassette has held up fine,shifts on par with Shimano cassettes and looks sooo cool.usually I use the 12-27 Dura-ace cassette which weighs 180g. what`s left? ahh - that 78g saddles is really comfortable even though it sure doesn`t look so.the carbon shell flexes and makes for a comfort I haven`t seen in any other saddle. any further questions? here`s my e-mail:
